YOU CAN BE YOU
We are a “care farm” working with individuals with Autism Spectrum Difference* (ASD)
A “care farm” is a communal place for people of all abilities to participate in farming. Our goal is to maintain and improve participants’ physical and mental health by offering farming activities including seeding, watering, delivering farm products, and enjoying the grown produce.
*We use “difference” instead of “disorder” as we believe Autism should not be looked at as a deficit or a shortcoming. By using “Difference” we acknowledge that those on the spectrum have different ways of communicating, socializing, and approaching situations.
WE NEED YOUR HLEP!
We are looking for volunteers for farm fence construction! Please use your muscles for us!
We have been building the fence since last year, and we would like to finish it before the start of the farming season next month.
Weekends or weekdays are also possible.
If you are interested, please contact us.
The farm address: 800 N Main St. Randolph MA

Being at PLANET Boston’s farm made me feel relaxed and my son was so happy to run around the field, water the plants, and pick tomatoes.

PLANET Boston’s pilot program has been such a great opportunity for my son to be social with others in the community while learning about farming skills. We particularly appreciated that he was able to take things at his own pace. Not to mention the farm is a beautiful place to be!
